Analysis: Trading the Anticipated Top in Gold

Analysis: Trading the Anticipated Top in Gold

The next couple of trading days look important for gold from a cyclical perspective. Several medium and short-term studies suggest it is prone to a turn of some sort during this timeframe. With strong resistance just overhead at 1301/16 (50% retracement of the 2008 to 2011 advance and 4th square root progression of year-to-date low) we favor a top. Given the corrective nature of the advance from the June 28th low the anticipated turn should provide a good opportunity to align with the broader downtrend in place since October. Weakness below this week’s low near 1270 will confirm that a top is in place, but a close under a key Gann support level at 1248 is really required to signal that a more meaningful decline is underway. Strength in XAU/USD beyond 1316 after Tuesday would invalidate the cycle turn window and shift our focus higher.
